Supremely graceful Ms. Ayesha Aziz, from Jammu and Kashmir has become India’s youngest pilot at the age of 21. She became a student pilot at the age of 16 after being fascinated by pilots during her visits to Srinagar. Her father was a source of great inspiration who supported her ambitions. Ayesha soon she expects to fly MIG-29s fighter jets as well as commercial aircraft in the future. Conservatives are already trying to curtail her freedom and want her under a hijab. It is hard not to draw a comparison between such people and the stone throwing youth of Kashmir – who seem to be totally misguided and wasting their youth and life.

An essential element of this article is that people from outside of Jammu and Kashmir cannot be granted citizenship of the state. So they cannot vote in state elections but, if they are citizens of India can vote in national elections. Now it is being reported that nearly 15,000 people of Rohingyas origin from the Myanmar and Bangladesh. In a recent shootout, one of the foreign terrorists was a native of Myanmar, and military officials feel that such settlers could be ticking time bombs. There are other reports of Islamist organisations encouraging Rohingya Muslims to settle in Jammu and Ladakh. If outsiders have been settled in J&K in violation of article 370 and with knowledge of most, then is the Article 370 still valid/ Can we not settle others from Pakistan there?

More than 200 private and public schools along the LOC (line of actual control) in the Jammu area have been closed due to heavy and continued firing and shelling from Pakistan army. This seems almost non-stop. Per reports similar shelling in not reported in Kashmir, which could mean that Pakistani army and terrorists are targeting schools in Jammu. In a another development, miscreants or terrorists in the Kashmir valley have set buildings of 27 schools on fire, and this is on top of the four-month shutdown of educational institutes ordered by the the separatists.

How Shocking! – Jammu has over 2 million refugees are originally from Pakistan Occupied Jammu & Kashmir, West Pakistan and even Kashmir. As you can see in the picture, they continue to live in very bad conditions even though they are INDIAN CITIZENS. They have NOT been given citizenship of Jammu and Kashmir even though they live in camps in Jammu & Kashmir for decades. Due to this they are only permanent residents and cannot buy property, get government benefits and obviously vote. Previous J&K government did give state citizenship rights to Uyghur Muslims who migrated from China to Tibetan Muslims, so there is past precedence. The delay is another instance of religion based discrimination for Hindu and Sikh communities in J&K.

Suddenly there is tension in the National Institute of Technology campus in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir. Per news reports Kashmiri students were celebrating India’s T20 loss to West Indies, arguably a cause for provocation. In response to this as also to anti-national protests by a minority of students in JNU, Hyderabad University and Jadavpur University, non-local students (e.g. Jammu and other regions) gathered and raised pro-India slogans and raised the national flag, but looks like they have been beaten by police (the matter is under investigation) and these students feel their lives are threatened. What is the problem with raising the tricolor or the national flag? How come the JNU protesters – Kanhaiya Kumar and Shehla Rashid gone into silence mode?

23-year-old Captain Pawan Kumar of the Special Forces, died while leading leading his team from the front, against terrorists holed up in Pampore in Jammu and Kashmir. An “inspiring leader”, who even after bf being injured in an earlier anti-terrorist operation, volunteered for more operations. He was a Jatt and a JNU degree holder – and all that mattered was love for the country and not any campus “azadi” calls or that of reservation demand by his community in Haryana.
